I downloaded google Chrome and tested
which you mention. As you say, there's no link or edit field related to "sign in," and the JAWS cursor verbalizes only a graphic.
No question, Chrome works very fast and brings up a clean interface, but it isn't fully accessible, as previously claimed. IE11 will remain my default browser until someone demonstrates how to overcome these drawbacks or Google fixes them. I do recall that someone on this list explained why the JAWS cursor doesn't work well with Firefox, and I also recall there's a complicated fix, so the JAWS cursor problem may be a function of changing technology with which FS needs to catch up.
I had difficulty finding the right download link for my Windows 7, 64-bit machine. For anyone interested, here's the right link:
Now that I've installed Chrome, every time I open it, it tells me it isn't my default, but it moves on too fast for me even to locate a checkbox or other field in the event I one day do want it to be my default.

It is not that the jaws cursor doesn't work but rather with the changes in operating systems and the way in which jaws works there is little for the jaws cursor to see. Does your jaws cursor read whats on the desktop? If so it is not broken.
